Scottish Grand National – Ayr Saturday 21st April

Scottish Grand National History in the offing? Scottish Grand National history could potentially be made if Vicente is first past the post at Ayr on Saturday. Having won the 2 previous encounters of this event the very likeable 9yo is looking to emulate Couvrefue II who won the run in 1911, 1912 and 1913.  The only difference being that the race in the days was ran at the now long gone Bogside racecourse which closed in 1965. Paul Nicholls obviously rates Vicente’s chances

Grand National 2018 – Saturday 14th April Aintree

Grand National 2018 likely contenders The Grand National 2018 looks likely to be run on soft going.  With the news that Minella Rocco, Vicente and Beeves were all pulled out before the 1pm declarations the market has changed slightly. The new top weight at 11st 10lb is Blaklion.  Nigel Twiston-Davies horse will relish these conditions.  He was unfortunate last year when he looked to have the race in his hands but ran out of steam and faded ultimately finishing in

Aintree Festival Day 1 – Day of Champions The Aintree Festival Day 1 gets underway with the first races 4 Grade 1 races. The highlights of the day should be the 2.50 race (Aintree Bowl) and the 4.05 (Foxhunters Chase). Racing gets underway at the Aintree Festival Day at 1.45pm with a Novice Chase over 2m 3f.  Whilst only 6 runners go to post 5 of them appear to have great chances.

Irish Grand National
Betting Tips

Irish Grand National – Fairyhouse 2nd April

Irish Winner Guaranteed for Grand National An Irish winner is guaranteed to win at Fairyhouse on Monday after Harry Fry pulled out AMERICAN on Monday.  This leaves the field with a fully Irish contingent of horses to run the 3m 5f course over the 24 fences. Incredibly neither of the heavyweight trainers Gordon Elliott or Willie Mullins have ever won an Irish Grand National between them. Elliott may have has as many as 12 runners in the race.  Gigginstown will be aiming to win this

Racing starts at 1.30pm with the Triumph Hurdle.  Currently 9 runners go to post for this hotly anticipated contest.

Cheltenham Festival Day 2 2018 Preview

Cheltenham Festival Day 2 Preview Part I Cheltenham Festival Day 2 gets underway with a Novice Hurdle at 1.30pm.  Similar to day 1 we have an Irish horse heading up the market.  This looks to be a 2 horse race. SAMCRO comes into the race defending a 100% record on the racetrack.  It will be interesting to see how Paloma Blue runs in the Supreme Novices as Samcro defeated him by 9.25l last time out.  That would only further frank his

Cheltenham Festival Day 1 2018 Preview

Cheltenham Festival Day 1 2018 Part I The Cheltenham Festival Day 1 2018 is now less than 24 hours away.  Like many others I am feeling slightly underwhelmed but come 1.30pm am sure to rouse myself for the Cheltenham roar. As usual we start the festival with the Supreme Novices Hurdle  and as seems normal in recent history we start with an Irish hotpot. GETABIRD trained by Willie Mullins is a very short priced favourite for this (currently available at 13/8). With the going

Man Utd
Betting Tips

Man Utd v Liverpool – Sky Sports 12.30pm

Man Utd to park bus under Mourinho? Man Utd v Liverpool is one of the fiercest rivalries in World football never mind the Premier League. I cannot foresee a situation whereby an Old Trafford crowd will allow Jose Mourinho to deploy the same tactics as he did at Anfield.  This culminated in them having 1 shot on target in 90 minutes and only 37% possession of the football.  It was only due to the brilliance of David De Gea that

Spurs

Spurs v Juventus – Champions League

Spurs to wobble at Wembley? Spurs will be looking to complete the task they started in Turin at Wembley on Wednesday evening. The home team will be hoping to start the match a lot better than they did in Turin when they were 2 goals down after only 9 minutes.  It shows the strength and character of this Spurs team that they were able to claw there way back into the game and indeed were unlucky not win the match.

Liverpool v Newcastle

Liverpool v Newcastle – Sky Sports 03/03 5.30pm

Liverpool v Newcastle – Rafa’s Return Liverpool v Newcastle is a Premier League game that is revered in Sky folklore. Who can forget Martin Tyler’s fantastic commentary on that momentous evening in April 1996 when Kevin Keegan’s entertainers lost the league at Anfield? I as a Toon Army fanatic certainly cannot. Now Rafa Benitez brings his team to Anfield 22 years later in the midst of a relegation battle.  They should have come here on the back of 2 consecutive

Eider Chase

Eider Handicap Chase – Newcastle Saturday 24th Feb

Eider Handicap Eye-catching horses. The Eider Handicap takes place at Gosforth Park and is ran over 4 mile and 0.5 furlongs. The race is a real slog fest and has been abandoned on numerous occasions over the years due to the weather.  This year I would anticipate the going to be soft if not heavy with all the rain we have had in the North of the country. Therefore we are going to have to look to horses who have

Ascot Chase
Betting Tips

Ascot Chase – Saturday 17th February

Ascot Chase Treble for Cue Card? CUE CARD has already won 2 Ascot Chases in 2013 and 2017.  He is likely to be reunited with Paddy Brennan for his penultimate run on a racecourse. His current odds of 9/1 reflect the fact that although he is the highest rated horse in the race at 166 it will take an enormous turnaround in form shown this season for him to claim his 3rd Ascot Chase. Added to that only one 12yo has won

Champions League Quarter Final
Betting Tips

Champions League Quarter Finals

Champions League Quarter Final Goal Blitz for Reds? The Champions League quarter final between Porto and Liverpool has the potential to be an all out attacking goal fest. Porto along with Sevilla conceded the most goals in qualifying for the Champions league quarter finals.  It is worth noting that Sevilla were in Liverpool’s group and that Liverpool put 5 past them in their 2 matches. Porto were in a qualifying group that I perceived as one of the weakest.  RB

Denman Chase – Newbury Saturday 10th February

Denman Chase to a provide Cheltenham Gold Cup Winner? The Denman Chase which takes place at Newbury on Saturday sees the highly anticipated return of NATIVE RIVER. The Colin Tizzard trained gelding has not been seen on a racecourse since coming 3rd in the 2017 Cherltenham Gold Cup. He does however have previous form at Newbury having won this race last year.  In doing so he beat the highly rated Bristol De Mai. Although this form now has to be taken

Six Nations – How will The Home Nations fare?

Six Nations – England England are the current holders of the Six Nations and were only denied the Grand Slam in the last match by Ireland last season.  They enter the tournament as the bookmakers favourites to retain the trophy. They KO this year with potentially the easiest fixture of R1 away to Italy.  Bonus points could come into play so a positive start here is a must for Eddie Jones’s men. England have been hit with injuries and will

Premier League Midweek Matches

Premier League Midweek Double The Premier League returns in midweek after the FA Cup took centre stage over the weekend. Whilst the main focus will be on TOTTENHAM v MAN UTD I think that the value may lie elsewhere. On Tuesday evening live on BT Sport Huddersfield entertain free scoring Liverpool at the John Smith’s Stadium. David Wagner’s team come here with 1 win from their last 8 league games.  They are also on the back of 3 consecutive league defeats.

Cleeve Hurdle – 3.35pm Cheltenham

Can Beer Goggles cause Cleeve Hurdle shock? It would be fitting if BEER GOGGLES were to win the Cleeve Hurdle this week after the shock death of Richard Woollacott. He comes here in fine form after springing a shock by winning the Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury in December.  On that day he saw off much heralded rivals in Unowhatimeanharry, Thistlecrack, COLIN’S SISTER and WHOLESTONE. This time Wholestone and Beer Goggles meet on level weights. Whether Wholestone can turn round the 13.5l is

Manchester City are first up against Bristol City on Tuesday in the Caraboa Cup semi final 2nd leg at Ashton Gate. Bristol City put many Premier League teams to shame by only going down 2-1 at the Etihad. However they have suffered a dip in form in the league since

Clarence House Chase

Clarence House Chase – Ascot Saturday 20th January

Clarence House Chase Hat-trick for Un De Sceaux? Un De Sceaux returns to Ascot on Saturday aiming for a third consecutive Clarence House Chase victory. This will make him the most successful horse in the race since it began in 1989.  Currently he holds the record with Master Minded who won the race on 2 occasions in 2009 and 2011. Willie Mullins is also looking to emulate Paul Nicholls hat-trick of victories between 2009 and 2011 with Twist Magic also
